$1B+ Lawsuit Against Spammers

“Some people think the solution to spam is technical, others think it’s legal, at Project Honey Pot we were founded under the theory that if you’re going to make a dent in this extremely difficult problem you need the strengths of both. All week we’ve been telling you about new technical services. Today we’re announcing something different. On Thursday, April 26, 2007 at 10:54am in a court in the Eastern District of Virginia, Project Honey Pot filed the largest anti-spam lawsuit ever. Seeking more than $1B in statutory damages, the suit was brought on behalf of our members. It targets a huge swath of spammers. If you’ve harvested email addresses or sent spam in the last two years, chances are you’re on our radar screen and we’re coming after you.”
